Open Office Unique Features and Outlining.

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 221.133.24.32] on September 15, 2007 07:50 AM
While far from perfect the Insert Frame feature is a significant and powerful tool which almost takes Writer to a document layout tool.

Also another unique tool, that can also be referred to for document Outlining is the Section feature. Sections allow you take whole groups of chapters and make them into logical sections for easier Outlining and they are completely customisable and list below the automatic outline information in the window. But Sections is more than this. With Sections you can now link different documents together and create 3D documentation with an over-arching document that shows actual current content from any number of sub-documents. Wow!
